Vidmar Introduces New Drawer Slide System

Press Release
New Design Supports 10% Increased Weight Capacity to 440lbs*, 2X Greater Durability Life* and is Proudly Made in Allentown PA Facility

ALLENTOWN, PA (October 16, 2017) — In response to customer demand for storage systems that supports increased weight capacity, enhanced durability and smoother drawer operation in heavy-duty applications, Vidmar®, a Stanley Black & Decker Storage Solutions brand, has launched a new and improved Drawer Slide System.

Beginning in October, the new Drawer Slide System will be implemented into the Vidmar® cabinet line and available to all customers including automotive, military, heavy equipment, manufacturing and agricultural industries.

“We took one of the most robust products in the industry, with its 40 year history of field success, and we listened to our customers. They asked us to increase weight capacity, improve smoothness, maximize life cycle, and enhance the user experience for heavy duty applications. The new VIDMAR® Drawer Slide System is yet another example of listening to our customers and investing in new products -- and it is only one of the many new customer-focused advances we are implementing across our product lines,” said Saad Malik, Vice President and General Manager, Stanley Black & Decker Storage Solutions.

Key features of the new Vidmar® Drawer Slide System include:

2x increased life-cycle versus current Vidmar® drawer systems

10% increase and 440 pound drawer weight capacity compared to existing Vidmar Carriage System cabinets

Compatible with existing Vidmar® cabinets. Customers can order a new drawer and runner, and update existing cabinets in less than 15 minutes using hand tools

The new channel design provides a greater grip on the drawer slides, resulting in less side to side movement and making it easier to open and close the drawer*, a significant improvement for double-wide and extra-wide cabinet footprints.
